LG just made the heavily leaked G Flex phone official. The LG G Flex, as the name suggests, is a phone with a curved display, showcasing the display technology that the Korean company has developed.
Samsung was the first to unveil a curved display smartphone with the Galaxy Round but the G Flex curves vertically whereas the Galaxy Round curves horizontally. In terms of practical use, the LG G Flex makes more sense as it is easier to use for calls and to put in pockets.
In terms of specs, the LG G Flex is powered by a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM and packs a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 3,500 mAh battery. The G Flex has rear control buttons just like what we saw in the LG G2. The G Flex has a 6-inch 720p display and weighs only 177g.
The LG G Flex is quite special since it has a self-healing back coating which repairs hairline scratches. There’s no word yet as to pricing and global availability.
